Lupin’s FTF Sunday

Haven’t been about much lately because I discovered the Time Team archive on 4OD, so Mme L and I have been watching a couple of those a night (I think we had a telly for the first series or two but all the rest are new to us). Hence less time for internettery.

Still walking for 30 miles a week, thanks to the DailyMile website.

Have succeeded in catching up my blog backlog (with my grandfather’s war diaries) and am now back to following him 95 years behind to the day.

The dayjob is considerably less demanding at the moment but only because there’s a log-jam upstream of our department. Flood warning sirens tested and readyย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

Have been reading sewing books but really I need some practical experience at this point. Will buy some pins and needles and fabric and stuff.

Went to the beach last night to watch the eclipse and full moon. Am assuming that if I didn’t see the latter it must mean I was seeing the former (the moon was bright and clear back home after).

Saw some very strange “UFO” stuff across the water – haven’t encountered that before. Am an idiot, of course, but Mme L isn’t and she watched it too.
